is the administration making right now? >> well, america's influence in egypt i think is actually fairly limited. when we talk about it here in washington, a lot of times people say what is president obama going to do, what is our policy? there's only so much we can do, but to the extent that we have leverage, it largely hinges on the fact that we send the country $1.5 billion a year in aid and 1.3 of that goes to the military and what that money buys us in large measure is contacts and relationships within the egyptian military who really are the power in the country right now. there is a personal pipeline. in fact, secretary of defense chuck hagel has been perhaps our lead point of contact in egypt because the pentagon has these military and military relationships. we can at least have open communications. that doesn't necessarily mean that they listen to us or do what we say, but it's better than the alternative which is nothing and we become total bystanders. we want to keep that money going. the thinking is keep that money going and keep the relationships alive, we have a foot in the door. >> ann

as needing to protect our allies, our bases in the region. this is something that is going to require america's attention and hopefully the entire international community's attention. >> in egypt today supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi took to the streets in defiance of orders by egyptian authorities to end their protest. meantime, in his interview with cnn, president obama also addressed the possibility of cuts off u.s. aid. >> the aid itself may not reverse what the interim government does, but i think what most americans would say is that we have to be very careful about being seen as aiding and abetting actions that we think run contrary to our values and ideals. what we're doing right now is doing a full evaluation of the u.s./egyptian relationship. >> nbc's ayman mohyeldin joins us live from cairo. ayman, good afternoon, or good evening for your. we know the protesters took to the streets today. have we seen any clashes? >> reporter: well, the numbers today and the protests today in general were a big test for the muslim brotherhood. obviously in the last couple of weeks the

that region. great britain's america's biggest potential ally in any action against syria is now walking back its support for strikes delaying key votes until next week. in a contentious debate, prime minister david cameron warned the consequences of inaction. >> i think we can be as certain as possible that when we have a regime that has used chemical weapons on 14 occasions, that is most likely responsible for this large scale attack, that if nothing is done it will conclude it can use these weapons again and again on a larger scale and with impunity. >> meanwhile, they're asking that u.n. inspectors be given more time to carry out their work. u.n. officials have rejected those calls. they're expented to leave on saturday. we'll go live to nbc's ayman mohyeldin who's in lebanon. ayman, we're talking about the entire region. you're in lebanon. part of this is the refugees, people fleeing syria going into turkey and lebanon as they prepare or anticipate some type of military strike. >> you're absolutely correct, tamron. in fact, there's so many layers to it. there is a humanitarian layer that

their sons about growing up as young black men in america. what are some of the things they shared in these intimate conversations? >> you know, it's so challenging. those of us who are raising black boys as i am and as many of my readers are, we're confounded about what to tell our sons. it was really interesting to hear dwayne and boris and spike talk about the fact that they need to caution their boys about how to deal with authority, about how to deal with the police, how to be incredibly careful when confronted in an environment in which they're not comfortable, they don't understand. it is a shame that as parents of black boys we have to be additionally concerned with the very lives of our children being threatened in today's society. >> and for those out there who say as was the case with this website associated with michelle malkin that there somehow is an implication that "ebony" or others ignore black on black crimes. that is not the case.
